Donald Trump has done 1 thing *really* well as President

Donald Trump once pledged that, if elected president, he would put America first and spend no time at all worried about what the rest of the world thought about us. Mission accomplished!

(CNN)Donald Trump once pledged that, if elected president, he would put America first and spend no time at all worried about what the rest of the world thought about us.

Well, Trump mostly.

The 13 countries' median rating on confidence in Trump to do the right thing in world affairs is just 16%.

Trump's dismal ratings are closely tied to perceptions about how he has led the US during the coronavirus pandemic.

What's fascinating about these numbers is that both Trump allies and detractors will seize on them to prove their points.

Trump and his backers will cite the Pew data as evidence that other countries just don't like it when the US stops letting itself be taken advantage of and stands up for itself.

"Four years ago, I ran for president because I cannot watch this betrayal of our country any longer," Trump said in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention last month.

For Trump's adversaries, these numbers prove how much damage he has done.

Here's what is abundantly clear: Trump represents a fundamental break with the policies and strategic approach that every post-World War II president -- regardless of party -- has chosen to follow.

It's yet another line Trump has not just crossed, but obliterated.
